10. A firm’s total cost of producing q units is_{}.

The current level of production is four units. Using incremental change (also called the differential), estimate the amount by which the total cost will change as a result of increasing production by 1/8 unit.

Solution: The differential is defined as

_{}

Notice that

_{}

Therefore, the estimated amount by which the total cost will change is

_{}
